A Fine Display.
Very few people who have
passed Reavis & Abbey's store
liis week , have failed to stop
ml take a look at the display
vindows. The attraction has
een the magnificent display of
lattings now on exhibition and
liner line is rarely shown even
n the large cities. These mat-
ings represent a special impor-
ation as well as some especially
ttractive domestic patterns.
? here is also variety of quality
s well as quantity and the goods
ange from the inexpensive kinds
0 the high class goods that seller
or more money. A man who is
ooking for matting and cannot
ind something to suit him in all
his bewildering array , would
urely be a hard man to please.

nent is that of William P. Fer

A Question Of Ethics.
A bunch of representative citi
zens were holding an animatec
discussion Sunday morning on
the propriety of a Judge holding
a pretty girl in his lap One o :
the crowd did not think , a Judge
should be censured for such an
offence to which Bob Cain agreec
with some conditions. "I think
he ought to adjourn court first , '
said Bob ; "that is a job that
should be done at "chambers.1
To which Judge Wilhitc agreed
by saying , "that has always been
my practice. "
Burned by Gasoline.
Mrs. O. A. Cooper , wife of the
well known grain dealer of Hum
boldt , met with a serious acci
dent at her home at that place
on Monday. Mrs. Cooper was
attempting to burn some worm
nests from the trees in an orchard
adjoining her house and was
using gasoline for the purpose.
During the operation her cloth
ing caught fire ami when mem
bers of the family came in re
sponse to her calls for help , she
was enveloped in flames. A
blanket was thrown over her and
the flames smothered , but not
until she h a d been seriously
burned. Physicians believe that
she will recover , but it was a
miraculous escape from death.
Peace Declared.
Russia and Japan have reached
an agreement whereby a treaty
insuring a just and enduring
peace will be formulated At the
last moment Japan conceded the
indemnity and territory demands ,
consenting to divide the island
of Sakhalin and to return to
Russia a 11 interned warships.
The diplomatic victory is con
ceded to Russia though Japan
secures everything for which the
war has been waged. The world
icknowledges the accomplish
ment of peace to be due to the
courageous and determined stand
of President Roosevelt. Cables
from every crowned head of Eu
rope have been received by the
President , and the great news
papers of the world speak of his
successful labor in terms , of high
est praise.
Japan lias proved itself mighty
in war and magnanimous to a
defeated foe in the hour of vic
tory. It h as secured a place
among the great powers of the
world. T h e question as to
whether she can maintain the
position remains to be answered.
Team Ran Away.
One of the teams used in mov
ing the business college furniture
ran away Wednesday afternoon.
The wagon had been loaded when
the team took fright and ran
from the Wahl building along
the alley to the north until the
wagon collided with a telephone
pole and further progress was
stopped. The wagon was loaded
with chairs , desks and other fur
niture to which considerable
damage was done.
Business College Moved.
On Wednesday the furniture
and fixtures of the Falls City
Business college were removed
from the Wahl building on Wil
son street between First and
Second. "It seems like getting
back home again , " said Prof.
Barrett to a Tribune reporter.
"Here the greatest success of the
college has been achieved , and
the building seems charged with
a sort of college atmosphere. "
When asked concerning the out
look for the coining year Prof.
Barrett said , "The outlook is
very promising. More young
men and young women are com
ing to see the necessity of a bus
iness education , and the prevail
ing prosperity will enable more
of them than ever before , to get
such education. "
The college building has been
put in first class shape all
will be ready for business on the
opening date , which is Monday
September 11. It is altogether
likely that the enrollment this
year will be very large.
